I created a series of GeoGebra apps for the JC topics of Waves and Superposition, mainly on the concept of Phase Difference. The sizes of these GeoGebra apps are optimised for embedding into SLS. When I have time, I will create detailed instructions on how to create such apps. Meanwhile, feel free to use them.
Here's a good explanation by Veritasium on why the image of the black hole looks the way it does.
Useful Links for Learning about using GeoGebra in SLS. update on 2 Jul 2019: The SLS lesson shared during IPSG 2019 can now be found in the SLS Community Gallery.

I created a new GeoGebra app based on an ideal Stirling Cycle (A. Romanelli Alternative thermodynamic cycle for the Stirling machine, American Journal of Physics 85, 926 (2017)) which includes two isothermal and two isochoric processes. The Stirling engine is a very good example to apply the First Law of Thermodynamics to, as the amount of
Teachers in Singapore have been provided with the Student Learning Space (SLS) - an online platform meant for students' self-directed learning using MOE's curriculum-aligned resources as well as for teachers to create engaging technology-assisted learning experiences for their charges. One of the features that many science and math teachers find useful is the ability to create
GeoGebra link: https://www.geogebra.org/m/hscshcj8 This simulation demonstrates the power dissipated in a variable resistor given that the battery has an internal resistance (made variable in this app as well). Since the power dissipated by the resistor is given by and the current is given by I=ER+r , P= E2×R(R+r)2=E2r2/R+R+2r This power will be a maximum if the
Some of the more challenging problems in the topic of electricity in the A-level syllabus are those involving a potentiometer. The solution involves the concept of potential divider and the setup can be used to measure emf or potential difference across a variety of circuits components. Basically, students need to understand the rule - that
I've curated a series of Geogebra apps that are relevant and useful for the instructional objectives under the Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' and 'A' level syllabi. Some of these apps were created by myself. If you have any ideas for new Geogebra apps, do let me know in the comments section below and I'll see if
